GMO Model Profile: Sade Bates

Monday, 11 March 2013 14:17 Written by  Billy Montgomery

Sade Bates is the kind of model that industry professionals love to work with––because she loves what she does and it shows.

At 23 years old, Sade hit the modeling ground running three years ago and has no intentions on looking back. Since then, she has appeared in short films, fashion shows, plays, and is a staple for fashion shows throughout the Chicagoland area. She has also modeled in Miami, Florida.

"It is my passion," Sade says. "I want more to do this than any other aspiring model I know, and will go the distance for it, even relocating."
